NEW YORK, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A host of real estate's most influential thought leaders came together on November 4 to share strategies for succeeding in the global marketplace as part of the Global Real Estate Summit NYC at the New York Marriott Marquis.
The day-long event, now in its 13th year, focused on "Engaging the Global Future" and was presented by the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors® (HGAR), Staten Island Board of Realtors® (SIBOR); Long Island Board of Realtors® (LIBOR); Greater Bergen Association of Realtors® (GBAR); and Brooklyn Board of Realtors® (BBOR).
Real estate leaders participated in more than 20 presentations and panel discussions to address the biggest issues impacting the global real estate market. The takeaways? Build business relationships globally. Market intelligence and data are key. And it's always personal – never lose sight of the power of personal relationships.
"International real estate buyers and investors enhance brokerages and profitability, boost markets and expand the economy," said Vince Rocco, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Halstead. "Relationships are key to developing an international presence. Although mobile devices, social media and other technological advances enhance connectivity, it has changed the dynamic of communication. Relationships remain crucial for all business endeavors, particularly when it comes to global real estate."
Rocco moderated a panel, "Brokerages and Global Outreach," featuring Scott Durkin, President and Chief Operating Officer, Douglas Elliman Real Estate; Edward de Mallet Morgan, Partner, Private Office, Knight Frank LLP; Michael Jalbert, Executive Vice President, Global Field Operations, HSF Affiliates; and Jason Gesing, Executive Vice President of Business Development, eXp World Holdings.
Richard Haggerty, CEO of HGAR, reinforced the importance of market intelligence and accurate data. "With all of the competition and market disruptions, our colleagues shouldn't be bogged down in process and be worrying about disparate data," said Haggerty, who is also president of OneKey™ MLS, the newly launched regional multiple listing service for the New York metro area "This is New York City – the real estate mecca of the world. We must ensure our colleagues have the tools to not just stay on top of the global trends, but get ahead of them."
The National Association of Realtors® and the New York State Association of Realtors® were premier sponsors for the 2019 Global Real Estate Summit NYC.
